Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu responded on Thursday that Turkey would retaliate if the United States imposed sanctions over its offensive into northeast Syria, according to media reports.
It was a wrenchingly familiar scene for many who had fled the militants of the Islamic State (IS) group only a few years ago.
"We defeated 100% of the ISIS Caliphate and no longer have any troops in the area under attack by Turkey, in Syria".
US President Donald Trump warned that if the Turkish operation was not conducted "in as humane a way as possible", he would "wipe out" the country's economy.
In Washington, officials said Wednesday that two British militants believed to be part of an Islamic State cell that beheaded hostages had been moved out of a detention center in Syria and were in USA custody.
While the statement warned Turkey against excesses, Trump's failure to intervene, and the breadth of the subsequent attacks, have brought a torrent of bipartisan and worldwide criticism and charges that the United States has abandoned its counterterrorism partners. Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar said a total of 342 "terrorists" - Ankara's parlance for Syrian Kurdish militiamen - were killed in the incursion so far.
On Thursday, Turkish troops encircled the border towns of Ras al-Ain and Tal Abyad.
Global condemnation of the Turkish assault has been quick, although a divided UN Security Council on October 10 failed to agree on a statement, with Europeans demanding a halt to military action and Syrian ally Russian Federation calling for "restraint" and "direct dialogue" between Syria and Turkey.
"They didn't help us with Normandy, as an example".
The YPG have been allies of the USA so far in the fight against the jihadist group Islamic State, but Ankara considers it a terrorist organization for its links with the banned Kurdistan Workers Party, the active Kurdish guerrilla in Turkey. "If you try to label this operation as an invasion, it's very simple, we will open the gates and send 3.6 million refugees your way".
He added that for now there was no indication that the prisons where the fighters were held were under threat.
North Atlantic Treaty Organisation member Turkey says the operation is necessary for border security against the YPG militia, which it designates a terrorist group because of ties to militants who have waged a decades-old insurgency in southeast Turkey in which more than 40,000 people have been killed.
Tens of thousands of people have fled homes in the area, as worldwide calls to halt the attack increase.
Turkey considers its operations against the Kurdish militia in Syria a matter of its own survival, and it also insists it won't tolerate the virtual self-rule that the Kurds succeeded in carving out in northern Syria along the border.
The operation dubbed Peace Spring by the Turkish government began Wednesday at around 4 pm local time with air raids and shelling while a ground offensive, involvingTurkish soldiers and allied Syrian rebels, began at 11.30 p.m., Efe news reported. Such a zone would end the Kurds' autonomy in the area and put much of their population under Turkish control.
North Atlantic Treaty Organisation member Turkey has said it intends to create a "safe zone" for the return of millions of refugees to Syria.
"Turkey is today forgetting that the priority of the worldwide community in Syria is the fight against Daesh and terrorism", Mr Macron said.
